Rules of the European Challenge Cup (ECC) PDF Print E-mail

(Updated 28th May 2008, Maribor)


1.The ECC is supervised by the organising body of JJEU.

2. The JJEU Board:

2-1 Can nominate one representative of JJEU for each of these events (paid by JJEU)

2-2 Will appoint one member of the JJEU Referee Committee, proposed by its Director, who will attend each event to evaluate the Continental referees, particularly those appointed recently (accommodation paid by the organiser)

3. The cup can be won by a JJEU member federation (not by individuals). The winner is the member federation with the more points at the end of a competition period.

4. A competition period starts after the European Championship and finishes at the next European Championship ( 2 years ). Within these two years each member federation will earn points at three Open tournaments each year, at the JJEU European Cup and finally at the European Championship.

5. The six open tournaments over the two years are proposed by the Event Organising Committee to the JJEU Board. The selection is made with the view to guaranty a fair location of the events all over Europe ( North, South, East) and timing spread over the year.

The official JJIF competition rules should apply at these tournaments. Competitors should be presented by their National federation.

6. In principle all referees should be at continental level but the organising Federation can complement with its best referees in order to achieve the required number for the competition.

7. The member federation organising one of the tournaments is responsible for collecting the JJEU registration fees which are fixed at 5 Euro per individual participant. These fees are collected by the organising country and sent to the JJEU Treasurer.

8. The organisation fees paid to the organising country is a fixed amount of 30 € per participant to cover the organisation of the tournament. It doesn’t include any accommodation, food or travel costs. 

9. How to earn points

Competitors earn points for their country in each official weight classes and Duo categories (adults, juniors or veterans are not included). Only the best result in one particular category is counted for a particular Federation.

The number of points earned depends on (attached table)

- the place obtained

- the number of competitors in the category

- the points earned at the European Championship count twice and those earned at the European Cup are multiplied by 1,5

- for the particular event, the addition of points for the thirteen categories make the total score for the country

- at the end of the two year period, the winning country is the one with the more points

- the Event Organising Committee is responsible for collecting the scores after each event, calculating the points earned and making the updated score visible to everyone.

10. The European Challenge Cup is given to the coach of the winning country at the gala dinner of the European Championship.

11. When a federation has won the three times in a row or five times with some interruption, it can keep the Cup for ever and should donate a new Cup.
